Since 1987, when CAF Give As You Earn was introduced, more than £1.3 billion has been given to charities by hundreds of thousands of employees collectively. A staggering amount and put into context, a sum that would comfortably buy the entire squad of Manchester United – twice over.

As the UK’s first and biggest payroll giving scheme, it enables people to make donations from their pre-tax salary. It’s now used by over 2,700 employers across the UK and more than 220,000 people make a regular donation to charity through CAF Give As You Earn.

For more information, see how we're celebrating 30 years of payroll giving.

However you manage your giving, we thank you for using the CAF Charity Account to support your favourite causes.


After Wendy’s children were born, she wanted to start giving back to vulnerable kids less fortunate than hers through payroll giving. Now, after more than 10 years of giving, Wendy finds out first hand where her monthly donations have been going.

If you’d like to share your giving story, we’d love to hear it. Share it with us on Facebook or email us.
